Overview

Skip the line to see the best of Renaissance art and architecture on this full-day combo tour of Florence’s top three galleries. Led by an expert guide, bypass the crowds with your direct-access ticket to explore the Uffizi Gallery, home to Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’ and Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Annunciation.’ Then walk along the Vasari Corridor, a former secret passageway now filled with art and rarely open to the public. Afterward, skip the line at the Accademia Gallery to pay homage to Michelangelo’s ‘David.’
  • Full-day Florence combo tour with priority entrance to the Uffizi Gallery and Accademia Gallery, plus access to the Varasi Corridor
  • Skip the lines at the Uffizi Gallery to see Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus, Leonardo da Vinci’s Annunciation and others
  • Stroll along the Vasari Corridor, the secret walkway used by Florence’s Medici rulers
  • Ogle the paintings and views from this hushed corridor, which is rarely open to the general public
  • Bypass the lines at the Accademia Gallery to see David and other Michelangelo works
  • View other Accademia paintings including the Cassone Adimari wedding scene frontal
Your day will begin in Piazza della Signoria, where you’ll meet up with your guide. Hear how the city became the ‘cradle of the Renaissance’ under the patronage of the Medici family. If your group exceeds six people, you'll be provided with a headset to ensure you hear your guide clearly.

Head to the Uffizi Gallery, skipping the long lines with your direct-access ticket. Learn the history and techniques behind the Renaissance’s greatest masterpieces, including Leonardo da Vinci’s Annunciation and Botticelli’s Birth of Venus.

Pause at the gallery’s scenic terrace before stepping into the hidden world of the Vasari Corridor, masked behind one of the Uffizi’s nondescript doors.

This elevated corridor was built in the 16th century to accommodate the secret comings and goings of the Medici family. An architectural marvel, the passageway leads from the Pitti Palace, through a church and over the Ponte Vecchio to the center of the city. Today, the corridor is home to an impressive portrait collection and rarely open to the public. Admire the art on display and catch views of the city from the circular windows.

Enjoy some free time to purchase lunch before reuniting with your guide at Piazza della Signoria. Head to the Accademia Gallery, skipping the main entrance lines to view Michelangelo’s David. Examine the lifelike qualities of the Carrara marble statue. Then follow your guide to the artist’s unfinished sculptures, The Prisoners and St Matthew, and visit a selection of works from other Renaissance masters.

Your tour will conclude in the gallery, where you can continue exploring independently if you wish.

Very interesting, informative and memorable tour which took place on June 14, 2016. One of the highlights. This tour is a must. Roberta Uffizi Gallery and Vasari Corridor Tours and Mauritzio Accademia Gallery Tour were excellent knowledgeable guides from whom someone could learn a lot.

Absolutely fabulous - would definitely recommend. In the Uffizi the guide focussed on only a small number of items but as a result you were able to appreciate and learn a lot more than just wandering around and trying to take in everything all at once. The groups were small only 4 for accademia and tour guides very knowledgable and engaging. It was a priviledge to visit the Vasari Corridor. And yes, beating the queues is a very significant benefit!

This is a must do. Instead of wandering aimlessly around not knowing what to focus, the guide bring your attention to the must see stuff and explaining the importance, the history behind them.
